Raw Chocolate Pudding

This is yummy and super healthy. You can eat it just as pudding or for dipping fruit. Enjoy! This recipe is from, "All Recipes.com". I love that site.

Chocolate Pudding


* 1 avocado - peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks
* 1 banana, peeled and cut into chunks
* 1 cup unsweetened soy milk
* 1/4 cup raw cocoa powder
* 2 tablespoons agave nectar
* 1 teaspoon lemon juice
* 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (optional)

You can even sprinkle a little cinnamon on top (optional)


1. Place avocado, banana, soy milk, cocoa powder, agave nectar, lemon juice, and coconut into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Divide into small containers, and store in the refrigerator 1 hour until set.


  1. there are many more recipes that are so different than this one. Just google it.

  2. Wow! Have you tried this Em? Is it good? It looks so yummy!

  3. So, can I say that I watched "Food Matters" last night, and I am SO wanting to go raw??!!

  4. Yes, I ate it and it is good. Just make sure your avocado is not to ripe because if it is, it is not so yummy. Same with the banana. They need to be a perfect texture.


    i just watched Good Matters two nights ago and yes, raw is a very good thing. I think I am about 75% raw now. Maybe even more, it just depends on the day. I just made a new friend and her family is all raw. I am going to her house today. I feel so normal around her:)

  5. i mean food matters not good matters

  6. ps ashlee there are so many raw recipes for chocolate pudding when i googled it but i just had all the ingredients for this one. some of the others look better. I will give those out as i try them, if they are good.

  7. Em, I have a question about raw food diets. What do they say about grains? Because they are pretty much impossible to eat without cooking right? Or am I just totally uneducated about that? I bet I am...

    And I just want to tell ALL of you that Emily looks fantastic these days. When I saw her in Utah she was positively glowing with health! I admire you so much friend!

  8. Thanks Ashlee! Yes, you are wrong about cooking grains. You do not need to cook them. There are ways to eat them raw, mostly by sprouting them. Google it! Take a grain that you love and type in, raw wheat berries recipes or raw quinoa recipes. It will tell you how to prepare them etc. Plus when you sprout them the nutrition value increases enormously.

  9. One more thing, when you cook a grain you are cooking nutrients right out of them. It is a tricky one because we all love warm bread etc. Got news for you, you can still have warm bread and grains just in a different way.

  10. oh boy... I have so much to learn about eating raw. I'd just have to do smoothies and plain raw veggies and fruits incessantly until I figured it all out.

    Did any of you actually make this pudding? I have tried 3 different avocado-based pudding recipes now, to try and get my little one to eat more healthy fat (she won't eat avocados plain, although she does well with pistachios and cashews), and the first one she wouldn't eat because it had seeds in it (strawberries were the base), so I made the same thing with just bananas (no seeds) and she pronounced it "yucky", and then the last one I made (from the green shakes and giggles blog), she did hesitantly eat about half, because I was distracting her and shoving it down her throat. My husband sorta liked the last one, but not a huge fan. I am about ready to give up on avocado based puddings, but if someone says this one is good, then I'll suck it up and do one more.
